The Recipe of Yam Fries:
Quantity of yam: 1/2 kg
Slice the yam into reasonable thin pieces for frying
Marinate the yam slices with either 1/2 tsp. of sambhar masala (this spice powder mix is a blend of these ingredients: coriander, chilli, fenugreek, cumin, curry leaves, edible common salt, Bengal gram, green gram, black gram, black pepper, cassia bark, turmeric, asafoetida and refined cottonseed oil) or aagri masaala (the ingredients of this powdered spice mix are chilli, turmeric, black pepper, cloves, mustard seeds, poppy seeds, mace, black cardamon, green cardamon, bay leaf, star anise, stone flowers & salt), 1/2 tsp. of turmeric powder and smidgen of salt – according to preference of flavour – for approx. 10-15 minutes.
I opted to fry the yam slices in an iron tava. (Tava is metal concave frying pan used to make flatbread. Iron tava is heat efficient, naturally non-stick and chemical-free cookware.)
Oil the iron tava with minimum quantity of any mild-flavour vegetable oil with the help of a spoon, pan-fry the yam slices in medium heat; place adequate number of marinated yam slices on the tava, immediately turn the yam slices until its well coated with oil on both of its surface, then fry the yam slices consecutively on each of its sides until its surface turns crispy.
The yam slices retains its nice particular flavor along with the pleasant flavour of the spice powder.
